KIKISOSO PROMO VIDEO

We wanted to show a little bit of the letterpress printing process in our studio and had this video put together by Rotterdam video journalist and media producer Tim Slobbe.

We would really appreciate your comments and a share on vimeo or any other social media to get it off to a good start and help spread the word about our studio and what we do. READ MORE

LETTERPRESS BABY ANNOUNCEMENTS

we have just created a ‘bespoke design’ for letterpress baby announcements. you can order either the boy or girl template and have your  little one’s details inserted, such as name, birthplace, time, weight etc. the baby announcement cards are also printed on kikisoso’s house paper, 100% cotton lettra paper. we have two examples below in the usual pink or the blue, however, we have also been asked for other colours so drop us a line if you are interested in another color.

the designs come in a set of 25 cards, gift wrapped in a recycled presentation box including corresponding envelopes. you can order additional sets of 10 of cards and envelopes depending on your needs. now available on our kikisoso shop

LETTERPRESS BABY CARDS – NOW IN STOCK

these letterpress baby cards are just off our press and we are thrilled with them. we decided to create two different cards for a baby boy or a baby girl. These cards are hand-fed one by one onto our new edition to the studio, the Golding Jobber printing press (from 1886). We used one of our in-house papers, the florescent white cotton lettra 300 g/m² from neenah papers. the cards are now available for purchase on our kikisoso shop

LETTERPRESS KÖLN – VISITENKARTEN (100% BAUMWOLLE)

SCHNURSTRAX STRICKEN BUSINESS CARDS
here is one of our latest letterpress köln hand printed business cards. the project entailed the layout design and print for Beate R. the proprietor of the wool shop Schnurstrax Stricken situated in the Bayenthal area of Köln. Beate wanted something different, that you could feel with a haptic quality related to, and to communicate her business. Our thick and fluffy 100% cotton lettra paper was just the right thing.

LETTERPRESS KÖLN

Settling on a 2 colour / 2 sided print, we then created a new layout for the cards, allowing the wool ball to unravel and stretch nicely across to the second side of the card and spelling out the web address. It also allowed for a nice arrangement when displaying the cards together.

We are almost as thrilled as Beate with the outcome. To put it in her own words, “I like them so much, I don’ want to give them away”. A nice complement for our work 😉
